VIVEKANANDA JAYANTHI / NATIONAL YOUTH DAY / VANDE VIVEKANANDAM



It is in recognition to the relevance and significance of Swamiji and his teachings that 12th January, the birthday of Swamiji, is being observed as National Youth Day since 1985. The Govt. of India citation in this context reads ‘it was felt that the philosophy of Swamiji and the ideals for which he lived and worked could be a great source of inspiration for the youth.’

Vivekananda Darsanika Samajam has been celebrating the National Youth Day as ‘VANDE VIVEKANANDAM’ on a grand scale for the last few years with many programmes. Public meetings, seminars, competitions for students, souvenir publication, photo and book exhibition and sales at various places precede the final celebrations.
